Copycat Taco Bell Fiesta Chicken Taco Salad

Still mourning Taco Bell’s Fiesta Taco Salad. I added some things that don’t normally come with it and I baked the chicken in my toaster oven so I wasn’t babysitting my griddle. You can air fry the tortilla bowl too. Or you can do what I did and give yourself a second degree burn. CopycatContinue reading “Copycat Taco Bell Fiesta Chicken Taco Salad”

Copycat Panda Express Cream Cheese Rangoons

I love Panda Express’ Crab Rangoons and they’re so easy to make! Oddly enough, they don’t use crab or imitation crab in their original recipe. Feel free to add some though, it’s delicious!

Cantina Style Salsa

I’m kind of a brat when it comes to salsa. I grew up eating hole-in-the-wall restaurant style cantina salsa and all those premade grocery store shelf jars always tasted too sweet and processed. So now I just make my own. 🤣 It goes great with my Carne Asada Tacos, tortilla chips and Green Chile ChickenContinue reading “Cantina Style Salsa”
